If your computer or tablet is connected to the Epson Printer network, you can edit the network settings of the receipt printer via the web interface. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Open a browser.
  2. Enter https://192.168.192.168 in the address bar of the browser.
    If you get a message that the connection is not secure, you can establish an unsecure connection. 
  3. Log in with the username epson and the password epson.

    This password only applies to older printer models (until the end of 2020). If your printer displays an error message at this point, you may have a newer printer model (end of 2020 or later). In this case, enter the serial number of the printer as the password. 

  4. Go to Configuration > Network > Wireless.
  5. Enter the name of your Wi-Fi network in the SSID field.

    Please note that your router SSID does not contain special characters, the ß and the file number.

  6. Under Encryption Type choose WPA-PSK (AES).
  7. Enter the password for your network under WPA Pre-Shared Key.
